★★★★★
4.9 Stars




Sent to the family ranch to overcome his addiction, Taylor Reese is angry and hurt. Feeling rejected by his father and brother, Taylor throws himself into ranch life to help him forget. But it isnt long before it hits him hard how much his life has spiraled out of control, leaving him floundering and looking for a lifeline.

Libby Karlin is cautious, wary of Taylor
s presence. Her dark past makes her reluctant to let anyone near her family. But after Taylor strikes up a friendship with her son, Libby finds herself drawn to the sadness within him. His experiences are no secret to her, though she keeps her own buried until a knock on her door has her gasping for breath.

Could dealing with their pasts really give them a future?



We already met Taylor Reese in Beneath The Surface - where he was this totally unresponsible, drug-addict brother of our hero Kyran.
Nothing much changed .... he's still all that.
But now his Dad makes him stay at his Uncle's farm in Wyoming for six months!!!!
He needs to clean up his act, and unless he does that, he will be cut off from the Reese family - and for Taylor more importantly, the Reese money.

So poor Taylor finds himself on this smelly little horse farm with nothing to do.
That won't last for long, because his uncle has lots to do for him

The only interesting thing about this whole mess are the people who are living in the cottage behind the farmhouse.
Beautiful redhead Libby and her adorable 6 year old son Levi.
 


They're on the run from their past and have found a peaceful place to live and work on Uncle Jacob's farm. (Libby is working as a horse-riding teacher.)

It takes them all a long while to like each other, because basically, Taylor is a horrible ass to everybody.
He's selfish and irritated and in pain and he's behaving like a little kid.

But with a little time and the attention of Libby and Levi and Uncle Josh, Taylor slowly starts to live again...

But not only Taylor's past is a point of trouble for the little 'family' on the farm....
Libby's past comes into town too....


WILL TAYLOR FINALLY BEAT HIS ADDICTION?
WILL LIBBY & TAYLOR GET THEIR HEA???
WILL THERE BE A CLIFFHANGER o.O


OR WILL EVERYBODY DIE AT THE END???

 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺



I don't want to spoil anything!!! ☺☺☺
(OK - I can tell you that there's no cliffhanger ;) )

I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK!!!

This was soooo different from every other book we read.
This hero - Taylor - he's such an idiot, ass, selfish prick, petulant little boy - not your typical hero material. But that's what made me like him even more. You had to look really hard to find something good in him - but it IS there. It just takes him a while to grow up.

He's not the way he is without reason of course - he was basically abandoned by his parents - his mom died when he was a baby and his dad hired nannies and maids to raise him and his brother Kyran.... Plus a lot of other 'Daddy and Brother Issues' that all came together to make him want to forget everything by taking drugs.

But he's now 28 - he should've gotten over his childhood troubles a long time ago.
That was the one thing that bothered me a bit.
The whole book would've made a bit more sense to me if Tayler would've been somewhere between 19 and 25 - but with 28 he's a bit old in my opinion....but - it didn't bother me all that much ☺

I really enjoyed reading this book.

It has everything a great book needs...

LOTS OF SEXY SCENES!
Moving scenes
Funny scenes
Suspensy scenes
Frustrating scenes
Romantic scenes


 If you like sexy Romances with a bit of suspense and a total anti-hero who will turn into a really hot cowboy - GO BUY THE BOOK!!!! ☺

STALK M.A. STACIE ON:




 STOLEN FROM GOODREADS

 M. A. Stacie is never without a book or her eReader. A voracious reader, with a love of sexy, yet angst ridden novels, she loves getting lost in new worlds. Her need to write did not grip her until after her second son was born, when her previous rambles became fully fledged stories.

She describes herself as one huge contradiction, and though not the most conventional of hobbies, she counts getting new tattoos as one of hers. Along with running, knitting, and listening to loud music. However, she is yet to work out how to do them all at the same time.

M. A. Stacie lives in the UK with her husband and three sons.
